Your quotes are 28.00, mine are 50.00, I have scaled back also, I can't afford to pay $50.00 for a lead that ends with the phrase "We will get back to you" from the client. and a surprise from my bank statement for 200.00 in Thumbtack charges
I have shared many of the same sentiments that have been voiced here. Many with the same failed excuses of why this system remains flawed. You wonder why so many have opted for other options. I adored my previous experience with thumbtack.. you keep messing with the secret sauce. That said.. I am getting another burger, elsewhere.
exactly how I felt!
I used to ADORE Thumtback and used to refer it to everyone.
Now I tell them to stay as far away as possible.
That secret sauce is no more
I do NOT like to have to set a weekly budget and NOT know how much is being paid for a lead! I also do not want to pay for a lead that just responds to my quote with a "thank you for responding type note" with no questions or request for booking! Have not used Thumbtack since this started and do NOT plan to until the payment is more fair to the professional.
Wrong to pay for a quote just because someone views it. No communication just TT ringing up their earnings and draining us pros. Thumbtack does not listen.
